Direct Conversion AB will open its Application Innovation Centre in Graefelfing, Munich, on 5 July. The facility will showcase Direct Conversion's advanced photon counting X-ray products, allowing customers to see for themselves the latest X-ray imaging technology in action.
The Centre has been carefully designed around Direct Conversion’s innovative concept of product development, so dedicated customer application solutions for pipeline inspection and industrial and medical applications can be refined and tested in situ at the initial stages, avoiding costly evaluations at point of delivery further down the line. CEO Spencer Gunn explains, “I am very excited by what we have created. The customer can come in, see demonstrations using our detectors, explore integration examples and try out imaging applications of their own. This will allow existing and potential users of our detection systems to grow their confidence in our solutions and the detectors’ abilities.”
Looking ahead, Spencer adds, "Direct Conversion will be able to broaden its application experience and present our detectors in their best light, which means an easier route to long-term customer relationships and improved services.”
Specialists from target industrial and medical sectors will tour shielded X-ray laboratories and examine self-shielded X-ray equipment for industrial imaging applications and testing, including medical imaging systems. Also on show is an industrial AXI system for high-speed applications and a universal CT-setup for industrial and medical feasibility studies.
Adding depth to the customer experience, Direct Conversion will be running workshops, seminars and training focused on all aspects of its disruptive technology, and there will be ongoing proof-of-principle (POP) and proof-of-concept (POC) studies.
Located in Munich’s ‘biotech triangle’, the Centre will strengthen Direct Conversion’s collaborative work with the neighbouring Technical University Munich (TUM) and the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU). There will be an opening symposium with guest speakers from research and industry, including Leibniz Award winner, Professor Dr Franz Pfeiffer, and Professor Willi Kalender.
